The Finnlings' statistics

This week has been a week of doctor's appointments for the Finnlings. All three had their well-checks (Georgia's 5 year, Baxter's 3 year, and Eleanor's 9 month), and Baxter had his first visit to the dentist. I am worn out after all the appointments, but am proud to say that all three are healthy and growing and just as perfect as three little kids with sinful natures can be :-)

Baxter's first dentist appointment went really well. We opted for him to sit in the big kid chair (though the pediatric dentist has a different set up if he wasn't okay with that), and he handled that well though at first he thought he was going to fall off. His teeth are beautiful and clean and cavity free! There was much rejoicing! (I think I have posted about this, but Georgia has at least two cavities and possibly more--her teeth are very close together and filled with grooves, both of which attribute to cavities) Baxter's teeth are close together, and his big boy teeth that they can see on the xrays are large and cramped, so we have been told to prepare for braces. Joy. But his teeth right now are great, and we are grateful for that. I am very pleased with how well he did at his first visit, and am so grateful to my pediatric dentist for the good care they provide!

I blogged about Baxter's injury at the doctor's office here, and mentioned that we didn't get his height/weight stats because of it. When I took Georgia and Eleanor to the doctor for their visits, I was able to pick up Baxter's info. All three Finnlings are healthy and growing well. Georgia handled her finger prick, multiple shots and urine sample really well, and Eleanor is one of the happiest, easy going babies I have seen, even at the doctor's office! We are so very blessed.
